In several 1st World nations, the people want all the benefits, vacations, perks, retirement plans etc.. on the front-end without paying for em on the front-end or on the back-end... and then they vote accordingly only to be disappointed by all the lies.
Because my dad taught me right, I always told my boys as they were growing up: "Pay now, play later" ..a good watchword for life.. and not in visa versa order. You're always gunna pay. "There's no free lunch." Either on the front-end or on the back-end you will pay. So pay diligently on the front-end so you can enjoy playin' hard (or however you like to..) on the back-end.
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.. 3.23col
The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied. 13.4pro
In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends only to poverty. 14.23
The hand of the diligent will rule, while the slothful will be put to forced labor. 12.24pro
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might.. 9:10ecc
For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat. For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. see 3.10-12two.thes,5|8one.tim.bible
Of all people who work, shouldn't a born-again Christian witness be a hard, smart worker? How many do you see in your world today?..or do you see cheats and sneaky thieves at the workplace?
Sure he or she should be an honest, hard worker. It's simply a bright good witness for Jesus Christ in this dark world.. to be wisely diligent rather than lazy, negligent, or hard-working only when the boss is watching. It's a bad witness to be a thief on the job site.
